Bloom Day - July 15, 2009

High 75 F
Low  62 F
Well, those temperatures were for yesterday and as I sat to post I noticed the date and realized that I do have time to actually post a bloom day post hosted by Carol over at May Dreams.  No one is more surprised than I am by this early posting and this mornings' walk in the garden provided content.  Not only are there blooms on the squash plants but, finally, there are squash on the plant. They will be tomorrow night's dinner along with some broccoli.DSC_0046 Here are the blooms on the potatoesDSC_0009 which look like they are doing well.  I haven't grown them before and they are so lush I can't imagine being without them in the future.  The daylilies are bloomingDSC_0004 as are the monarda or bee balm which is attracting hummingbirds. DSC_0036 Fighting hummingbirds.  The dill has a limey green blossom DSC_0017 which smells even better than it looks.  Its' ferny presence in the garden is very welcome. The sweet peas are actually just starting to bloom.DSC_0022   Better late than never.  Annabelle DSC_0031 and Endless Summer hydrangeasDSC_0019 are blooming along with cimicifugaDSC_0051 and butterfly bush. DSC_0001 Sometimes the best blooms are not really blooms at all.  Here is a coleusDSC_0002 and some sedums in a container DSC_0005 and best of all the continuing bloom of friendship with Gail from Clay and Limestone and the men in her life.  DSC_0040 Tucker is not the only one who was very glad to see them.  Thank you for stopping by on Bloom Day at Ledge and Gardens.
